    • THE OUTPUT/THE DELIVERABLE FROM THE AUDIT • Qualitative Assessment of degree of compliance with original project management objectives, budget, contracting, performance • Quantitative Assessment of the percentage deviation from the expected project performance • Comprehensive recommendation for future project management procedures 6 Copyright © 2010-2020.

    • CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS FOR STRATEGIC INFORMATION AUDITS • To prevent “sabotage” of the audit, secure “buy in” from senior management [CEO, COO, CIO] • Use an outside firm which does not have “threat” power or a reputation of the elimination of jobs, as a result of the audit • Hold initial briefing meetings to explain the objective, scope and the output of the audit. 7 Copyright © 2010-2020.
